Topic: Roasting Decaf Was Re: +OT-- Tea (2 msgs / 31 lines)
1) From: Kevin
For the GC users, how long does an average roast take (up to City/City
+) for decaf?  I know a regular bean to City is in the area of 16 to
16.5 minutes (1st for me starts at 14:20-14:30 and lasts 1.5 to 2 min)

Kevin,
  My regular roasts are just a tad longer (1 min or so) than yours, but I've
been roasting in ambient temps of around 50-55F, though using a large box to
contain some of the heat (and preheating for a couple of minutes.)  My
decafs run about the same times as your regulars - i.e., around 30-60
seconds shorter than my caf roasts.  My current decafs are the African
Highlands blend and Mexico Chiapas, and recently the Panama Panamaria Farm.
